Neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio as a predictor of cardiovascular events in incident dialysis patients: a Japanese prospective cohort study

Abstract

Previous studies have suggested that high neutrophil/lymphocyte ratios are related to worse outcome in patients with cardiovascular diseases. Patients with end-stage renal disease, especially those with inflammation, are at an increased risk of premature mortality, primarily because of cardiovascular disease. We aimed to clarify if high neutrophil… (More)
